Australia Day Celebrates with Meyer Sound

FOH Staff • International News • March 3, 2008

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA – Australia Day, the country’s official national day, is a celebration of the first European settlement on the continent. This year’s Australia Day weekend concluded with the popular Sydney Ports Jazz on the Water concerts and a spectacular fireworks display. An audience of over 150,000 packed the Cockle Bay in Darling Harbour for the concerts and fireworks, powered by a Meyer Sound system. Provided by Sydney-based Coda Audio, the sound system was staged on an 80-foot high floating platform.

The system included four separate hangs of Meyer Sound line arrays, including twin arrays of 10 M3D line array loudspeakers each, as well as two more arrays of 12 MICA line array loudspeakers, which were recently added to Coda’s arsenal of tools. Powerful sub bass was provided by M3D-Sub directional subwoofers and 700-HP subwoofers.

“Coda Audio has used Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems since the company was started in 1990,” says Michael Wilkie, founder of Coda Audio. “Support from Meyer Sound in the form of long term warranties, technical and design information, and sound system design tools such as MAPP Online Pro are all excellent. Meyer Sound has been manufacturing state-of-the-art loudspeaker systems for over 25 years, and we know we can expect a level of quality from them that is hard to come by anywhere else.”

In addition to their new MICA line array loudspeakers, Coda Audio also purchased Meyer Sound 700-HP subwoofers and Galileo loudspeaker management system late last year, christening their use at the recent Sydney Festival, where the systems were at work on six different stages simultaneously.

With over 5,000 events planned across Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales and beyond, the myriad of celebrations across the country traditionally draw well over eight-million people.
